Don’t Be a Patsy: Wow, a Funny Anti-Drug Campaign

December 5, 2008

Ok, so we have all seen the Truth Ads to keep kids off drugs, and honestly, it is getting a little old. They used to be pretty good, but they were always a little far fetched. Hill Holliday New York recently came up with a campaign called “Dont Be a Patsy,” which features an over-protective mom named Patsy. Maybe I found it so funny because one of my best friends, named Pat, has a mom a lot like this, or maybe I found it funny because it is real life. It brings the audience in with a real life look, no fancy cameras or anything – just simple filming and people could be your neighbors. The YouTube page is meant to drive parents to to learn better ways to talk to their kids about drug use.
What do you think of Patsy?
